Item details

Braid a beautiful cord with doubled strands of silver wire, then finish it off to create a bangle bracelet or smaller sections of braid with cones and a loop for linking. This is a great technique to showcase big-hole slider beads like the ones that fit Pandora bracelets. It is faster than Viking Knit and you don't need to use a drawplate, and the braid can be adapted for use with leather cord (last photo). If you want practice braiding wire first, check out my Braided Copper Bangle tutorial.

This tutorial includes detailed, step-by-step instructions with high-quality color photographs and a materials list. The PDF can be downloaded instantly after payment is completed.

File delivery
Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.


I accept payment via credit card and PayPal. Keep in mind that if you choose the eCheck (bank account draft) option in PayPal it takes 3-4 business days to clear.

Returns & exchanges

I do not offer refunds on digital items. Please read the item description before purchasing.

I do my best to accurately represent my jewelry in photos and measurements, but computer monitors do vary. If for any reason you’re unhappy with your purchase, contact me using an email or an Etsy conversation. Please don’t use feedback to report a problem. Instead, send me a message and I’ll do everything I can to make sure you’re happy with your piece. I accept exchanges if items are returned to me in the original condition in a bubble-wrap mailer within 15 days of receipt. I do not accept returns or exchanges on special orders. If the item was given to you by another person, please let me know who originally purchased it.

I do what I can to make jewelry that is durable for normal use, but keep in mind that jewelry should be handled with care. Strung bracelets can be "loved to pieces" if they are worn a lot, so restringing is part of the regular maintenance. If an item has failed in craftsmanship within 6 months of purchase, I will repair the item free of charge. Please email me before returning the item. From time to time I use unique ingredients that I may not be able to replace, but I will substitute as best as I can. I cannot be responsible for items that are lost or damaged in return mail, so please use a bubble-wrap mailer (sold at most post offices and office supply stores) and consider insuring your package.

I am not responsible for items lost, stolen, ingested by children or pets, broken during your tennis match, dropped down a drain or on a tile floor, run over by a car, etc. Please treat jewelry with care, as some components and designs are delicate. If something is damaged in shipping, I will credit you the cost of return shipping if sent within 7 days of receipt. If I am unable to repair the item, you may exchange it for other AnneMade Jewelry.

If you have lost an earring, I will make another one if I have materials that match the orphan for half the cost of the pair. If I don't have matching materials, I'll make a pair from comparable materials for the full cost of the pair. Please convo me with a description or picture.

Additional policies

Virginia residents will be charged sales tax, and VAT will be applied to orders from outside the USA.

If you own a shop, gallery, or online boutique and would like to bring my jewelry to your area, please email me to discuss how we can work together. I offer wholesale pricing for retailers. I truly appreciate your interest in carrying my jewelry.
